The iXflash can be extremely useful in an emergency


There are occasions when emergencies can arise and you have limited resources at your disposal. The iXflash can be a valuable tool for not only documenting important information, but also allowing you to pass that information along when there is no power or internet access available.

Recently, my home was on evacuation alert due to massive wildfires in the area. In situations like these, if you need to evacuate, it’s best to only take those items that are necessary and can’t be replaced. However, if the worst case scenario should happen, in order to file a claim for all the items you may have lost, it’s advised to photograph or take a video of all your possessions in every room of your residence. What if you have limited memory on your iPhone and you don’t have time to clear space in order to record all your possessions. The iXflash allows you to record photos or videos that bypasses the iPhone’s memory and record those pictures and/or videos directly to the iXflash, saving time and memory.

In addition, in a situation where there’s no power and internet access, the iXflash can transfer those images, videos, and even important documents on to a computer or another iPhone/iPad. This will help you provide pertinent details to an insurance adjuster or other relevant person. Since the iXflash is so small, it can fit in your pocket comfortably, so you don’t have to worry about hurriedly packing it away and trying to remember where you put it, when you need it. Simply add it to you key ring or put it in a purse or other accessory that you keep on your person and it’s always available.

Hopefully you never find yourself in a predicament where it becomes necessary to evacuate quickly, but just like having a first aid kit or spare water bottles, it’s always good to be prepared should the need arise. The iXflash could become a very valuable tool in those situations, as well as being incredibly useful for normal day to day situations. It truly is the best of both worlds.

Vinyl records sales in 2020 outgains CD music sales for first time since the 80’s, showing physical media is still profitable!


Sure the title seems to cast a negative light over CD sales, but if you examine it closely, you’ll also see the positive opportunity as it relates to CD sales. Firstly, even in a decreased market, CD sales for the 1st half of 2020 was still around $130 million. That’s only talking about pressed CD audio discs, and doesn’t include the CD-R, recorded CD market treasured by many independent artists and enthusiast. Sure, CD’s have fallen from their peak, but they have not gone the way of the Dodo bird.

At one point, it was widely reported that CD’s were going to kill the vinyl albums market. But nostalgia lead to a steep resurgence that created steady gains year over year for vinyl records. The success of vinyl records and the continued increased sales for CD’s, shows that there’s a significant market for physical media. Undoubtedly, it’s won’t be too long before the nostalgia craze comes back around for CD’s and it will be cool to get the authentical full enhanced digital sound of an uncompressed original music file, rather than the deeply compressed streaming audio.

So for all the doomsday predictors that CD’s are dead, just as they thought Vinyl had kicked the bucket, there’s a second wave coming and you don’t want to miss out.

Vinpower’s Standalone Autoloaders Providing Years of Reliable Production!

Autoloaders built to last

When Vinpower first developed our own line of standalone robotic autoloader duplicators, starting with the TITAN series, we weren’t sure how long the systems would last in the field. We knew we built the TITANS to be extremely robust, but only time would really tell. After nearly 15 years in production, we are still receiving compliments about systems working in the field that range anywhere from 10 to nearly 15 years old. When we started out, we were just hoping for the systems to work lights out through the 1 year warranty. But time has showed us that the TITAN systems were built to last way beyond expectations.

So if you’re looking to purchase a new standalone robotic duplicator to make continuous copies of your CD’s, DVD’s, or BD discs, Vinpower’s line of autoloaders is perfect for you. Vinpower offers a range of options from small low capacity loaders like the VDX-1 or Cube series, to the slightly larger 2 to 6 drive 200 ~ 500 disc capacity Aero, to the always reliable 4 to 8 drive 1000 disc capacity TITAN Supreme.
